Bernie Ecclestone, 90, steps out with Brazilian wife Fabiana Flosi, 44, and their son Ace, 11 months

They welcomed their son Ace last July.

And Bernie Ecclestone, 90, stepped out with his Brazilian wife Fabiana Flosi, 44, and their little one, 11 months, during a family holiday to the Spanish island of Formentera on Saturday.

The former Formula 1 boss, who became a father for the fourth time when Ace was born, held hands with Fabiana – who he married in 2012 – as they took a stroll.

The grandfather-of-five looked casual in a white shirt and light blue jeans which he teamed with comfy dark grey trainers.

Meanwhile Fabiana showed off her legs in black shorts and a palm-tree design top as she held her baby who looked sweet in a sunhat and blue sunglasses.

The pair both put safety first and donned yellow face masks for the outing which is mandatory in Spain under current coronavirus regulations.

The pair headed for a boat ride with a few friends to enjoy the sights on their Spanish holiday. 

The billionaire businessman is already a father to daughters Deborah, 65, Tamara, 35, and Petra, 31.

His eldest, Deborah was born to his first wife Ivy Bamford before he welcomed socialites Tamara and Petra with his second wife Slavica Radic. 

He married Fabiana in 2012 three years after he divorced Croatian model Slavica.

Bernie confirmed he and his wife were expecting a child to Swiss newspaper Blick last April.  

‘Yes, it is due in the summer,’ Mr Ecclestone told the publication. ‘Hopefully he’ll learn to play backgammon soon!’ 

Afterwards, he told the Daily Mail: ‘There’s nothing that unusual is there? I haven’t had a job for a little while so I have had plenty of time to practise!’ 

Bernie hit back at claims he was too old to become a father after Ace’s birth, saying he wants even more children.

He told The Sun on Sunday: ‘Now I have more time on my hands and I hope I can spend it with my son as he grows up. I don’t know if we will stop here. Perhaps he should have a little brother or sister.

Discussing his first chats with his now-wife about starting a family when they first met eight years ago, he said: ‘Fabiana said she wanted a ­family, and I told her, “That’s no problem for me. Half a dozen kids is great”.’  

The couple met through the World Motor Sport Council, where she regularly attended meetings. 

They knew each other professionally for a few years before a mutual friend invited Fabiana on a cruise around Croatia with Bernie in 2009.  

‘Like all parents, we have only one wish: the child must be born healthy,’ she said ahead of his birth. ‘Hopefully he will never express the intention to do something with Formula 1.’  

‘Yes, she is thrilled,’ Bernie added. ‘We’re not sure what all the fuss is about! 

‘I’m very happy and happy really for my wife. She’s been looking forward to this happening for quite a few years, so I’m happy she’ll have someone after I’m gone. 

Exes: He met Croatian model Slavica in September 1982 in the pits at Italy's Monza race circuit (pictured with her and their daughters Tamara and Petra in 2006 at the Monaco Grand Prix)

‘It’s fun, I don’t see any dramas, I’ve got grandchildren and I’m looking forward to having another baby.’ 

Bernie – dubbed ‘F1 Supremo’ – is a former chief executive of the Formula 1 Group, which manages Formula 1 and part-owns Delta Topco.

He amassed an estimated fortune of £2.5billion throughout his time working for Formula 1. 

The eccentric mogul entered two Grand Prix races as a driver himself in 1958, but failed to qualify for either of them.  

The former F1 boss later became the manager of drivers Stuart Lewis-Evans and Jochen Rindt before he purchased the Brabham team in 1972, which he went on to lead for 15 years. 

He married his first wife, Ivy, when he was 21 in 1952. The pair had one daughter, Deborah, before they divorced in the 1960s.

He then had a 17-year relationship with Singapore-born Tuana Tan, before he met Croatian model Slavica in September 1982 in the pits at Italy’s Monza race circuit.

The pair, who had a 28-year age gap upon meeting, married in 1985 and later welcomed daughters Tamara and Petra.
